Shun Lee House
Ranked #72 of 102 St Ives B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 July 2010

We arrived to a lovely welcome and enjoyed a fab few days staying at Shun Lee. The rooms were exceptionally clean which is not always something that can be said about some B&B's. Paul is an excellent cook and the breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Great advice on places to eat and places to visit. We would highly recommend Shun Lee and would like to go back sometime. Thanks to Paul, Terry and the pooches x P.S. Fab G&T's too at decent prices

Why waste words the title says it all. We arrived in the afternoon and arranged a stay for next year at breakfast, and what a breakfast.

You will not be disappointed if you’re lucky enough to stay at this hotel.
The Shun Lee hotel is a grand Victorian detached house with spectacular views overlooking St Ives bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The house is both large and comfortable with a walled garden to the rear, which is an ideal suntrap for those odd breezy days. The bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with the most comfortable of beds and fabulous sea views. It has everything that you would expect from a 5 star hotel and it doesn’t disappoint.
But by far the biggest assets of the hotel are the exceptional hosts, Terry and Paul, nothing is too much trouble for them, you are made to feel at home as soon as you walk through the door.
The Breakfast was superb with an extensive menu only using fresh ingredients and cooked to order by Paul.
Their local knowledge was very useful to us and they helped us choose some great restaurants in St Ives, not only did they book the restaurant for us but they dropped us off on two occasions as they were going into St Ives themselves.
It's the best UK Hotel we've ever stayed in and the exceptional service and accommodation is unparalleled and we hope to return in the near future.

Terry and Paul give a new meaning to hospitality! Their beautiful home has two rooms for B&B and the rooms as well as the house is decorated with excellent taste and much love for detail. Nothing is too much for Paul and Terry, they provided excellent advice on restaurants and sightseeing and the breakfast was an experience.
From Shun Lee House you have direct access to the coast path and you can walk to St. Ives in 10 minutes. And the view from the house are absolutely splendid.
We stayed for three nights and the only thing we regretted was that we had to leave again :o)
Thanks again to Paul and Terry (and kisses for the two Yorki-girls), you are truly the best!

This really has been a weekend to remember. It was my wifes 40th birthday last week, so wanted somewhere special to celebrate the occasion. The Shun Lee definately falls into that category.

We had a wonderful welcome from the hosts Terry and Paul. The hospitality extended by them both is truly part of the great experience we had there. Friendly and attentive, nothing is too much trouble. At the same time you also get the space to enjoy the luxurious surroundings. The breaksfasts that we enjoyed were off the highest quality, with real variety available, a great start to every day

The accomodation is truly top class. You can not help but be bowled over by the breathtaking views. It would be easy to sit on the terrance and spend your whole break lapping it up. The 'Raffles' room was an absolute haven. Beautifully tasteful with real attention to detail. Lovely and spaceful this was another opportunity to drink in the scenery.

So all in all a genuinely memorable weekend. The real proof of how we have enjoyed ourselves is that we have already booked to come back the same time next year!!!

We chose this fab hotel as the venue for our small wedding and we couldn't have asked for anything more. The hotel has the best views of St Ives, Terry & Paul make you feel as tho you're at home and look after you like royalty. The food is better than any restaurant that I've eaten in and nothing is too much trouble. The bedroom was immaculate and had everything you could possible need. We will return to this very special place.
